Main Applications

Spatial imaging

The challenges of spatial imaging include capturing high-resolution images, reducing noise and improving accuracy. Optics and broadband infrared systems, in particular, are essential to providing advanced technologies such as telescope systems and optical cameras, obtaining detailed, high-quality images for studying the universe and the Earth.

Discover how INO helped Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and the European Space Agency in the Broadband Radiometer Detectors case study.

Earth observation

Earth observation faces challenges, such as global coverage, spatial resolution and real-time data collection. Optics is key in providing advanced technologies, such as observation satellites equipped with optical sensors, monitoring our planet precisely and continuously for resource management, natural disaster prevention and environmental monitoring.

Monitoring forest fires

Optical systems can detect temperature changes in forested areas, potentially indicating the presence of a forest fire. The data collected by these satellites can provide early warnings to firefighting crews and track the spread of fires.
